Netflix's number one movie which has horrific wine scene in first 10 minutes comes with a trigger warning

Viewers had already been warning others of how 'dark' the movie was

Content warning: Contains references to suicide

Netflix’s number one movie has a trigger warning for a scene taking place within just the first 10 minutes.

Labelled as one of the scariest movies of the last decade, viewers have already been warning others about just how dark and disturbing it is.

Even one of the writers of the 2019 film warned people about how ‘deeply disturbing’ it can be to watch. Check out the trailer here:

One of the film’s first scenes comes with a trigger warning because it’s so dark and features an ‘unexpected suicide’.

The Netflix drop I’m referring to here is, of course The Lodge, starring Daisy Jones & The Six’s Riley Keough, Fool Me Once’s Richard Armitage and It star Jaeden Martell.

Viewers have been left unable to sleep by the horror film, and The Guardian dubbed it as a flick 'that manages to burrow its way under your skin and stay there right through to the horrifying end'.

The synopsis for The Lodge reads: “A soon-to-be stepmom is snowed in with her fiancé's two children at a remote holiday village. Just as relations begin to thaw between the trio, some strange and frightening events take place.”

That trigger-warning required early scene sees Alicia Silverstone sitting down for a large glass of red wine.

But then, catching viewers off guard, she places a gun into her mouth and shoots.

According to the plot synopsis, the character takes her own life after finding out her husband is leaving her for someone else, which then leads into the main events of the film.

Viewers commented on a YouTube clip of the scene saying it ‘was so sudden’, with one saying: “I screamed when she did that. I had a feeling it was coming then she did. Caught me off guard completely. Horrible.”

Another wrote: “It caught me off guard. I had no idea there was even a gun. I thought she was just having a drink to help depression and then...”

And many echoed: “This made me jump when I first watched it. It was so sudden like fr.”


Leading the warnings about watching the film altogether is Sergio Casci, one of the film's scriptwriters, who welcomed it being 'finally available on Netflix UK' before telling his followers: "Warning - it's very dark."

The Lodge is currently streaming on Netflix.
